Like many have already said, both Easyjet and Ryanair operate a model where they make profit on a high load factor, ie, filling the aircraft. Those wishing the competition of Easyjet may regret it in the long term. Look at the Isle of Man, Easyjet operate a once daily service, which no doubt is normally considerably less than Flybe, because one, they can afford to undercut and also because they need to a high load factor to make money. This is killing the load factor on the Flybe IOM-LGW service, inevitably if Flybe pull off this route, what will the Isle of Man be left with? A once daily service to Gatwick with no interline connections or the BA CityFlyer London City route, great for business in the centre of London, but limited connections. This is what could happen in Guernsey should the big low cost carriers enter the market. There simply isn't the demand, regardless of how low the fare is, to operate a 4-5 times daily service to Gatwick on a 156 seater Airbus from Guernsey, unless they took out both Aurigny and Flybe. When it comes to Flybe and the Embraer in Guernsey, they will put one in if it makes commercial sense, if there are other Flybe routes to which the Embraer is better suited/ more profitable it will be on those and not GCI-LGW as is currently the case. Afterall, Gatwick is becoming more and more expensive to operate into for "regional" sized aircraft.
